Frontage Road Construction Update

Frenchtown Neighbors,

The Montana Department of Transportation will continue reconstruction work on the Frenchtown Frontage Road. A steady increase of roadwork will be from mileposts 6 to 11, where large scrapers and trucks will be hauling fill to build the sub-grade of the new roadway as the old roadway is milled off.

Becuase of this increasing volume, the shared-use path will be closed to the public until further notice as equipment is working in the area. In several locations, the path will be under heavy reconstruction and these locations will not provide a connection point. The path is currently unsafe for bicyclists and pedestrians of all ages.

Pedestrian and cyclist traffic is advised to not use the Frontage Road due to the loss of pavement and heavy equipment near and on the roadway. Please use an alternative route.

Additional information can be found on the project website or by calling the project hotline at (406) 207-4484 or by emailing

The Montana Department of Transportation sincerely thanks all for their patience as we work to bring a safer roadway and 11-mile shared-use path to the Frenchtown community.
